PSU Student Insurance Eligibility
All domestic students taking 5 or more in-load, non-Restricted Differential Tuition credits (1 credit for international students) are required to have health insurance that meets Affordable Care Act standards. Each term that students are registered for the appropriate number of credits they are automatically enrolled in the PSU Student Health Insurance Plan through Aetna, and their student account is charged. If students have the PSU Plan during Spring term, they are automatically covered throughout the summer till September 20 at 12:01 a.m. for free, regardless if they do not take classes or graduate.
Students who drop below 5 credits in the first two weeks of a term will no longer be eligible for the student insurance that term. If a student needs to drop for medical reasons and wishes to continue to have access to SHAC and insurance, they may appeal to do so by contacting Christi Ziegler at 503.725.2467.
